The Unordered List is the first of the three types of lists. This is probably the most common list you will use.
Example of an Unordered List...
<ul> <li>pencils <li>pens <li>erasers <li>paper <li>glue </ul>
The Ordered List, also known as the Numbered List, is very similar in structure to the unordered list, except each list item has a number in front of it, instead of a bullet. Also, the opening tag for the list is <ol> instead of <ul>, and the closing tag is </ol> instead of </ul>. List Items within the list still use the same tags.
Example of an Ordered List...
<ol> <li>pencils <li>pens <li>erasers <li>paper <li>glue </ol>
I have never used this type of List, but it may be helpful to you. This type of list is a little more complicated, but still very easy to use. This list starts with the <dl> opening tag, and ends with the </dl> closing tag. This has another tag known as <dt> for Definition Term, and <dd> for Definition Definition. These two tags do not need closing tags.
Example of a Definition List...
<dl> <dt>alliance <dd>A union, relationship, or connection by kinship, marriage, or common interest. <dt>alligator <dd>Large amphibious reptile with very sharp teeth, powerful jaws. <dt>alliterate <dd>To arrange or form words beginning with the same sound. </dl>
